Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired federal employee who fell into doing some online research for a friend of mine - a McKenzie - and now I'm in so deep I can't get out! Most of you probably know the feeling. But it's a harmless obsession which I enjoy so I'll stick with it until I pull out the rest of my disappearing hair. I try to post most of my findings on Find A Grave so if you're interested in the McKenzie family who settled in central Missouri after emigrating from North Carolina via Kentucky, just enter the last name - mckenzie - in the box to the right and take a look! As for my own family, some surnames would be Fallas, Fallass, Bray, Oechsli, Mills - all of those in the northeastern quadrant of the lower 48 - and, on the Swedish side, Nilsson and Waldemarsson in the province of Skåne län.


Interesting website for "famous" Kansas Citians. And here's another one.

Transferring people
Copy of email I sent to Kerry

Think I'll write Mr. Flescher a note and tell him to take off his tighty-whiteys.

He's VOLUNTEERING his time to the cemetery unless he's on the payroll.

At $5/name that would put him in a senior living center with no worries. Did you see his name count???

What's with the sense of ownership? Find A Grave is a collaborative effort.

Even I transfer family members if they are closer than I am.

She is in my tree through husband Charles S. Glaspell.
Pauline Fitzpatrick Glaspell-Daniel - the hyphen keeps people from searching for her. I've tried. Had to go to cemetery list to find her.

Unless she's in your tree, could you transfer her to me?
Pauline - 138940050

My number 47303245
Thank you.

RE: Re: Generous Henderson
Sorry it's taken me so long to respond; I haven't been on FindAGrave in a while. There was nothing unclear about your request either time; it seems that I was the one who was unclear in my response to your first request. As I tried to say in my previous message, I do not maintain Albert's memorial so I cannot add the relationship to Albert's father. As I tried to explain before, only the memorial owner can add linked relationships to the parents of the person the memorial is for.

Take care,

RE: Kathryn E Smith in St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery
Yes, I used this site to find the grave since the cemetery office had no info! However, it is hard to follow their directions because it was not clear where they started the "rows"!! I pulled up the site on my phone and kept looking for markers until I could determine where row 3 began. It is better to get a map from the office and find the sections this way. I knew where the section was, but it intercepts section A1 - E1, which makes it difficult to understand how the determine the rows they describe. Very helpful site, and I had printed off the marker photo to show the office when I went to ask for the Lot info. I will call the main office in Kansas /city,Kansas to ask for more details for you. The local office is just south of St. Joseph centery at Resurrection Cemetery.

RE: Kathryn E Smith in St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery
This grave is located in either in section I, J or K, but I am not sure of the loot number as the office had no record of her burial.

I was surprised also but I do kwoW often after the first spouse dies the 2nd gets no marker or no ending date. Just to let you know I loved your bio picture.

RE: Re: Generous Henderson
Hi Tom,
I don't see an edit on my profile's edits page regarding Albert and indeed, I shouldn't see one as Albert's memorial is not maintained by me and parents are added at the memorial of the child. Personally I turn my research into little bios of people rather than pasting indexed records. I hope someday we can successfully find out what happened to Mary. ~Liz

RE: Re: Generous Henderson
Hi Tom,
Yes, I found it on in the Kansas City Star. (I technically found it through a Google search, but happened to have a subscription.) Do you have a subscription to that site? I have not found a death record for any of the three of them yet. I did continue searching and found that Saidee (as she preferred it to be spelled)/Sadie (as everyone else seems to have spelled it) married again but her next husband also died and that is where the trail has gone cold for her so far. Her next husband, Joseph William Corder, is *also* buried at Forest Hill, as is his previous wife, Stella (WeMott) Corder. also has an article I hadn't found before (also in the Kansas City Star) about Generous and Kate having taken a trip on the Missouri River in their personal steam-powered houseboat! I hadn't thought to search for him as "Dr G L Henderson" until I found Albert's obit, and he was referenced that way in the other article too. ~Liz

RE: Re: Generous Henderson
Hope your team wins. I just found an obit for Albert in a Kansas City paper that lists him as the son of "the late G. L. Henderson," who is described as an early Kansas City physician. So it looks like by researching Albert, we have solved the mystery of what happened to Mary! I remain perplexed as to why Albert seemingly isn't enumerated in 1880, but who knows...

RE: Re: Generous Henderson
I see he is buried at Forest Hills, memorial # 125736778. His name is typed Alexander on the memorial though the gravestone clearly says Albert. I haven't located him in the digitized Missouri death records though.
